Sonic Visions Academy @ Mexico / New Music and Media Arts Field School Summer


Del 01 al 08 de agosto de 2022

“The program left an overall strong impression on me. It was a unique experience offering a diverse range of learning opportunities. It is rare that such a program should exist which runs the range from conference, seminar, residency and performance opportunity all wrapped into one” “This trip was an incredible source of knowledge and inspiration that will translate in my upcoming work” “Our field trip to Morelia turned out to be a very enriching experience. The trip was well organized, we got to discuss on interesting topics and learn from knowledgeable people, not only in electroacoustic, but to experiences and assist to various forms of art representation”

(…from students attending a Mexico Field School)

Our Sonic Visions Academy @ Mexico / New Music and Media Arts intensive summer program [3 credits] will offer undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of music and media arts backgrounds, as well as other fields of fine arts, communication, science, and engineering, an opportunity (a) to work on self-proposed research and creation -sound/media/contemporary/experimental art, and electronic music- projects; (b) to attend master classes and lectures on new media/electronic/sound art creation and contemporary music, and workshops-seminars on music & new media/sound art technology by world leaders in the field; (c) and to receive individual feedback/mentorship on their creative work by internationally recognized artists and tech experts.

The program will be held in Morelia, Mexico, mainly at the Mexican Centre for Music and Sound Arts - CMMAS facilities ( in downtown Morelia, and the UNAM/ENES campus Morelia - the National Autonomous University of Mexico, or UNAM is the largest university in Mexico, with 41,000 academics and 356,000 students.

Students will take advantage of Morelia and seek inspiration from its rich cultural life, history, people, and places for their projects. While you will be immersed in Mexico’s cultures, stories, architecture, intensity, speed, and beauty, you will also attend workshops and activities at the host institution: CMMAS / UNAM and will be meeting international artists and academics from several fields (e.g., experimental and new media arts, sound art and music, and much more).

A selection of the students' works will have the opportunity to be presented in a special section of the international and widely-known Visiones Sonoras Festival 2022. Students will have access to privileged information and opportunities to participate in Visiones Sonoras 2022 activities, to be held later this year. This special intensive program is open to undergraduate and graduate students from any Faculty of Concordia, and it also allows students from other universities to participate. Financial assistance is available for eligible students.
